1991 accord lx f22 2.2 L Today after the car warmed up i drove it about 1 mile and then the oil light came on and started blinking. The night before i was driving it around and it was fine. I checked the oil level and it was at the 2nd dot. I added about 1/2 of a quart of oil and started the engine. The light was solid at rpms below 1000 and above it was blinking. Then i shut the car off and let it sit for 10 min. I started it up and drove around the block, revving it up to 2500 rpm and no more for about a 30 second drive, then sat in it while it was idling for about 2 min. The light never came on. THe engine however, sounded different, and there were wierd noises like the sound of something splashing about comming from the engine. The exhuast sounded weaker also.

I just did a tune up 2 weeks ago. I talked to the honda service mechanic and he said that the oil pan might be dented or sludge might be in the engine and the valve cover has to be removed and the oil pan to check.
it's also possible that your oil filter is a POS and has some blockage. if possible dropping the oil pan and pulling the valve cover would be ideal but I think an oil pressure guage will tell you a lot about what's going on
